The OC is filtered through the lens of Danny Boyle and he decide to include what he considers a great accomplishment in the history of Britain. Its obvious Brits are proud of their health care system. I have several friends that always ask me how we can't have the same....I just SMH and tell them, "believe me, I know."

Oh, shame on the USA for cutting out the segment on British fallen heros.

As for the games, I really hate the coverage. NBC promises hundreds of hours and online blah, blah, blah but I dont get why you can't see any event online, only certain selected one. I also wish NBC didnt wait so long to broadcast the Phelps v Lochte race. I was trying to not find results, but you click on certain sites and they show the winners in bold on their front page. At least the morning stuff is live.
As a fan of Danny Boyle I was not disapointed. Love love love his work.

NBC cut out the Memory wall? Oh wow. And I thought CTV did a shitty job with that as well - if its a moment of silence for the fallen then shut the fuck up commentators! The in stadium announcer said what it was, the video played and our commentators blathered on throught the whole thing repeating what the stadium announcer had just said 2 seconds before.

I'd really love to just get a version of it with no one speaking. The BBC was also too talkative at times, but atleast they were commercial free.
